Information about Allotments within Northumberland County
Allotments and community gardens are valuable green spaces and
community assets that can help improve people's quality of life by
promoting healthy food, exercise and community interaction.
We recognise the unique role of allotments as places which
bring all sections of the community together. They provide
opportunities for people to grow their own produce as part of the
long term promotion of sustainability and healthy living.
Public interest in allotments has undergone a recent revival in
line with current thinking on healthy eating, organic food and
exercise. This has created a greater demand for allotments in
some areas, which is critical to protecting them from a change of
use in the future as a consequence of disuse or dereliction.
How To Apply For An Allotment
If you would like to apply for an allotment or register an
